Is the Chevy Malibu alvailable in manual transmission?
no it is not
Not sure what your budget is or if you want a 4 or 6 cylinder car, but you might want to consider the Ford Focus, which can be had with a manual transmission --or--- in my opinion, you can get something like a Mazda 3 and have a superb shifting manual trans and light clutch effort ..the styling is very nice on these cars as well.
